We know that James Cameron tried to make a gritty, adult Spider-Man movie in 1992 (see: the Spidey and Mary Jane sex scene on the Brooklyn Bridge). But what would this thankfully averted train wreck have looked like?

Wonder no longer, true believers. Techland has dug up concept art from Cameron's treatment, and the results are equal parts "sort of cool" and "resoundingly creepy." Say what you will about Spider-Man 3 - at least evil swing-dancing alien symbiote Peter Parker was never a peeping Tom. Also, note the scrapped storyboard featuring Spidey antagonist Electro!

The man sets a bad example... "The Abyss" was my favorite movie for a long time, but nothing he made after that - even the things he didn't get to do in the end - seems to make any sense, whatsoever, and still everything he touches turns from a brown heap into a golden one - financially at least, if not artistically.
